We provide A/C recharge service according to certified Honda standards. Honda drivers in Colorado Springs, Monument, Falcon, and Castle Rock, CO can trust that their service at Groove Honda will be completed by certified technicians in a brand new state-of-the-art facility. If your A/C is blowing hot air, we can provide the A/C service needed to make an arctic breeze blow from the vents.
Air conditioning relies on pressurized refrigerant to cool hot air. There are many components needed for the system to work properly, and the system must remain closed to retain the refrigerant. A/C refrigerant can escape from microscopic pores, worn lines, and faulty connections. If the refrigerant escapes, more must be added for the air conditioning to work properly. A/C recharge service adds more refrigerant as needed to support effective air cooling. The telltale sign of needing to recharge refrigerant is hot air blowing from the vents with the A/C on max cool.
An A/C inspection can verify low refrigerant and the cause. A certified technician begins by inspecting the system for leaking refrigerant. Components allowing refrigerant to escape must be repaired before adding refrigerant. The compressor is inspected to verify if the clutch engages. Refrigerant is needed for the clutch to engage. If it does not engage, this is a mechanical indicator of low refrigerant.
We know about the do-it-yourself recharge kits available at the parts store. This might seem like a good idea, but rest assured, there are big risks for trying this at home. Working on a pressurized system with multiple ports is risky. Installing the wrong refrigerant will cause damage. These kits also have analog pressure readings that cannot restore specifications precisely.
We perform the service according to certified Honda standards using a computerized A/C recharge station. The equipment connects to the air conditioning system to measure the volume of refrigerant within. It also allows us to check for leaks as new refrigerant is added. If a leak is found, we will provide the repairs needed to restore integrity. We can then add the refrigerant necessary to restore cold-air production to specifications.
Local Honda drivers can schedule service by phone during normal hours or via the online service scheduler when convenient. We run a courtesy transportation shuttle to the surrounding area for those needing transportation. You can relax in the waiting lounge with fresh donuts and fruit while we finish your A/C recharge service.
